The gray rocks of inhospitable New England protrude above 
the shallow soil over a considerable stretch of open wild land, 
bordered in the middle distance by a transverse screen of varied 
trees. Some are wholly strij^ped of their leaves, others are red 
and yellow in their Autumn coats, and here and there the 
evergreen cedars add their deeper note, while the rambling 
hollows and grassy slopes of the stony ground are spangled 
with the myriad fallen leaves. Beyond the arboreal screen the

across the stream are seen hamlets and single buildings ex- 
tending into a far vista among the mounting and receding

Out of its mountain fastnesses, the beginning of the great

ranges rise behind it, tier on tier, until they lose their loftiest 
outlines in the clouds already heavy with portents of Winter 
blasts and torrents. Through the clouds, which part sullenly, 
as if reluctant to give passage to its genial warmth, the sun- 
light makes fitful gleams on the escarpments of the hills. The 
shadows of the sky lie darkly on the foreground, which is a 
broken country diversified with timber, many of the trees being 
in brilliant color after the Fall frosts. The redeeming trait of 
a wild and savage scene is suggested by the artist in the thread 
of water, emerging from its stony cradle spot, to enter on its 
long and beneficent join-ney toward the haunts of men.

The waning moon is partly obscured by a s]3iir of cloud, in 
a bank low on the horizon, but its light illumines a generally 
clear night and throws a soft radiance about a hamlet of 
rambling cottages, with red tile roofs, which are seen a little

from one of them shine the lights of a cheery interior.

LANDSCAPE— A GRAY BAY 

Height, 16 inches; length, 2-i inches 

Here is one of those plain landscapes, all but unlovely in 
themselves, which become poetical under Wyant's sympathetic 
interpretation. A green field, broken in the foreground by a 
few gray stones and some yellowish growths, is interrupted in 
the middle distance and toward the left by a few green trees, 
the taller one toward the center of the picture overhanging 
a humble house which is only partly seen. Over all broods 
the stillness, the pensiveness, of a gray day in the country. 
From horizon to dome the sky is filled with moist, soft gray 
clouds, those aloft tinged with a deeper, brownish tone, while 
here and there openings in the gray veil give glimjjses of the 
deep blue beyond.

artist painted so many of his successful jjictures. A wide river 
flows from the left diagonally across the picture, and in the 
middle distance makes a turn, where it is crossed by a stone 
bridge with three arches. In the right foreground, a grassy 
bank, crowned by a clump of small trees, slopes down to the 
water's edge, where two boats are moored to the shore. 
Across the river is a wooded hillside with here and there tall,

is reflected in the quiet surface of the river.

gently sloping hillsides, declining from the wooded land at the

— and wavering in their growth, and they have woven an 
intricate tracery of reticulations against the green foliage and 
pearly sky of the background. Through this woodland glade 
the vista extends to an ojjen sunlit field bounded by a deeper

tant, hazy and obscure mountains. Crossing the picture is 
indicated rather than seen the hue of the river chasm, seaming 
the green expanse, its water, far below, visible in dashes here 
and yonder. In broad clearings near-by, white farmhouses 
gleam amid small green groves or orchards. Far away, vil- 
lages are seen, and the smoke of home fires and of industry 
rises in })icturesque columns into the still atmosphere. The 
siin in a light sky is obscured by heavy, grayish-yellow clouds 
that fill a large part of the visible heavens. Near the trees of

There is an almost tragic intensity in this jDicture. The plain 
stretches before us, gloomy in late afternoon shade and the 
shadows of many heavy black clouds, through which one can 
discern a woman in a white cap standing beside a seated man, 
and pools of water in the hollows, showing faintly brown. The 
awe and desolation are enforced by the scanty contrast of a 
few meager trees that break the level of the horizon, ^vhich 
is slashed with a long scar of flaring white. The sky above 
is mottled with blackish-drab clouds scudding across the 
gray vault. The ground shadows, notAvithstanding their 
depth, are extraordinarily penetrable, and the sky is marvel- 
ously modeled with substantiality of cloud, endless distance, 
and the mysterious pervasiveness of fading light. The ])icture 
represents the master in one of his grandest moods, profoinully 
observant, terribly sincere, rendering a phase of nature that 
is austere and inaccessible.

night still brood over the low-lying meadows, lending a pearly 
quality to the atmosphere and blending distant objects into 
a vague mass of form and color. Upon the right the river 
bank slopes sharply upward, and the summit is occupied by a 
low, rambling farmhouse, with outbuildings, shaded by sev- 
eral trees. The plaster walls and a red roof make an agree- 
able contrast with the green of the foliage, and a brilliant note 
is added to the composition as an errant sunray strikes one 
corner of the building, making it flash into inwe white. By 
the water's edge a number of women are washing clothes; an- 
other figure is seen in one of the boats which are moored close 
by, and a woman is carrying a jar of water to the house. The 
sky is covered with masses of white cloud, through which ap- 
pear a few patches of blue, and the still surface of the water 
reflects the varying aspects of the heavens and the deep green 
of the trees.

Orpheus is represented holding the liand of his wife, and

on its magic influence. Their figures are on the riglit of the

group of saplings, the foliage meeting ahove the figures in a 
feathery arch. Already the clear air of the upper world be- 
gins to enfold them; they have passed the Styx, which glides 
across the scene, on whose farther bank a chill and misty atmo- 
sphere renders indistinct a grove and the Shades which haunt 
it. One can distinguish a figure drooping upon the shoulders 
of another, three moving languidly side by side, and others 
lying on the ground, or standing in the underbrush still deeper

A PACK ti-jiin has just passed a stream, an edge of wliicli is 
seen in the foreground, and is making its heavy way across 
a wild and snow-laden plain. The last four horses of the train, 
just clamhering out of the shallow water, are shown side by side 
across the picture, with an attendant walking l)eside the one at 
the left. They are hard upon the heels of their leaders, which 
are seen with packs or with riders just ahead, while still others 
of the force are indicated struggling through the steep field 
in the distance. The whole is seen under a dark, unfriendly 
sky.

TENAFLY—A UTUMN 

Height, 31 inches; length, 46 inches 

A GOLDEN and colorful Autumn landscape, rich in foliage and 
in verdure, appears under a strong and varied sky. The fore- 
ground — a green field — is in the slight shadow of a passing 
cloud, the shadow ceasing in the middle distance, where the 
sunlight falls broadly upon a farmer who is crossing the field. 
He is seen before a thick group of luxuriant trees all in the 
sunshine, their foliage green, red, brown and yellow, about 
whose bases shadow and sunlight play, separating this main, 
central group from thriving masses of brush at the left — 
where the smoke of a cottage curls skyward — and a dense wood 
of yellow trees at the right; all on more distant planes. The 
rare sky, amidst dark, slate-colored and lighter, grayish clouds, 
discloses a patch of rich turquoise, and along a far distant 
horizon a stretch of deep indigo.

TiiK simple motive of this picture, simple as its title, is the 
simplicity of pictorial eloquence. Direct in its appeal, the 
l)aintiii<>' bi'iiigs the boundless outdoors close within the vision 
of the beholder, putting him in intimacy with the celestial and 
terrestrial panorama. The flooded sky is billowing with gray- 
white clouds in robust masses, while feathery exj^ansions of 
the tenuous vapor are tinted in mauve and rose as they course 
before the mottled turquoise of the distant ether. The land- 
scape below is silent, wild and free — no man has fenced it 
in or harrowed it — a colorful moorland crossed by a line of 
low-branching trees beyond a pond, which reflects the azure 
of the unseen zenith and the edges of the white clouds, and 
the wandering shadows of its humble shores.

It is one of the quiet, still, Fall days, of the delightful season 
when a genial Avarmth has returned to earth after a period 
of frost has colored the foliage. An air of peace pervades the 
country landscape. Tenuous cloud patches hang motionless 
in a sky varying in tone from green to hlue. It is late in the 
afternoon and some of them are yellowed in reflected light. 
The spectator is among fields \\'hich are partly green, partly 
tinged with brown where the herbage has felt the season's 
touch. At the left a group of young trees add their color to 
the picture, one a faded yellow-bro^^'n, one gorgeous in a

It is a still, Suinnier day in a goodly country, far from homes 
of men or occupation of the fields. The landscape is wild, 
peaceful and inviting. One looks up a shaded depression — 
hardly a ravine — carpeted with green grass, to a pond in the 
middle distance, and on to vague and sunny hillsides and a 
sky of fleecy clouds. At the left a gray, dead tree projects 
its helpless arms skyward at the head of a line of living trees, 
and at the right a higher bit of ground is shaded by the tall 
and flourishing trees of an open grove. The whole landscape 
is green, but the brown touches amongst the herbage and in 
the interiors of the trees convey their message of the passing 
of the season.

The moon, with a large and luminous ring around it, looks 
down from a mottled sky over a broad valley. A dense bank 
of the vapor which has settled into the central, deeper de- 
pressions of the valley, below the eye, shines with a pale sheen 
in the lunar radiance. On the farther side, rounded hill-tops 
rise against the sky, and the lower plateau on the nearer side 
is dotted with trees which make dark shadows in the relatively 
strong light. The distance is dimly luminous in a gi'SiJ, even- 
ing mist. A view from West Cornwell, Conn., over the valley

qualities are only caught h}^ a profound student. A clear- 
ing in a woodland carries the spectator's eye over a long 
stretch of distance, dotted here and there by tree forms 
mistily made out in the nebulous light of approaching day. A 
large tree at the right center rises in sturdy dignity, and 
branches out at tlie top of the composition. All is kept quiet 
and subdued, in tones of rich color, and the sky is indicated 
with a knowledge born of much observation. A red sun 
struggles out of the clouds. There is a feeling of solemnity, of 
the hush preceding the activity of full daylight.

COAST VIEW 

Height, 17 inches; length, SQl/o inches 

Xeae the center of the sandy foregroimd shore, st^e^^^l with 
stones, rises a small, isolated peak of rock, to the left of Avliich 
is a receding coast-line of bold cliffs, mellowed to a variety of 
rich browns, mantled atop with dull russet-green herbage. 
Round their bases lap the pale blue and white surf -lines of the 
blue sea, over which hangs at the horizon a vaporous cloud 
bank of warm slaty hue. Above this is a layer of dull creamy 
clouds, billowing across the sky, which, overhead, is a greeny- 
blue, flecked with skeins of green and rosy tufts. The rocks 
have the grandeur, a little grim, of Courbet's robust realism, 
and the hasty manner with which the upper sky is painted re- 
minds one of his unscrupulous impetuosity.

A PAINTING that lias been called one of the artistic gems from

her cherry-picking an idyl. The delicate seriousness of the 
face, lit up by wonderful blue eyes, with the flaxen hair as a

arrested action but a natural movement in the uplifted arms, 
with a cherry just plucked. The Summer air and the rich,

flames from a fire off to the left which seems to be in the shelter 
from which another horse is just fleeing, and have darted away 
to make their escape. In their mad fright they have plunged 
wildly and blindly into a fence, which gives way but has checked 
them momentarily. One horse has fallen, and another — the 
only one with a bridle — which he has snapped — plunges over 
him, digging his hoof into the other's flank.

Sir : I have learned with great pleasure that you have become the

one of" my works to wliicli I devoted great care. The place is well 
known, on the coast of the Mediterranean near the Gulf of Juan. I

the site is a very grand one. 

Accept my sincerest compliments.

This is indeed a superb spot, full of grandeur as M. 
Harpignies says, and a noble tree worthy of its surround- 
ings. We look up, an emerald canopy screens the sky, 
suj)ported by the sturdy gray limbs and branches of the great 
tree. We look beneath the huge, umbrageous arch, to find 
the sunlight brilliant on the nearby shore of the glo\^dng, 
sapphire sea. Distant coastlines rise vaguely and low in a sky 
suffused with a yellowish-white light. In front of all this, the 
foreground is a carpet of rich, luxuriant verdure — a brighter 
emerald than the arch above — threaded by a woodland road 
leading to the blue gem, which is the sea, its shaded courses 
spotted with sunlight filtering through the interstices of the 
foliage aloft; and lesser trees are assembled as a retinue at a 
little distance from the monarch.

PORTRAIT OF LADY WILLIAM ELLIOTT 

Height, 4<9 inches; zvidth, 39 inches 

The three-quarter length portrait of a lady, seated, in a blue 
gown oj^en at the neck and with flowing sleeves and white 
trimmings. Back of her shoulders and across her lap a pale- 
red mantle is folded, draping itself also over a table at her left, 
on which she rests one elbow. Both hands, in her lap, toy 
gracefully with a spray of flowers, and her blond hair trails 
down in a single long curl over one shoulder. The lady faces 
front, her head poised slightly at one side, and wears an ex- 
pression of mild serenity. Architectural and landscape back- 
ground.

SIR PETER LEEY 

English 1618—1680 

POUT RAIT OF ELIZABETH, COUNTESS OF 
CHESTERFIELD 

Height, 50 inches; xcidth, 40 inches 

The Countess as depicted here appears in her youthful prime, 
her face still that of a young girl, her figure rounded in 
matronly proportions. She is clad in a robe of rich red, over 
which a light mantle of brown is draped, held by a girdle of 
jewels. At the elbow the white silken lining of the brilliant 
robe appears. She \\ears her dark-brown hair in closely curled 
ringlets, enormous pear-shaped pearl pendants hang from her 
ears, and she has a necklace of pearls. The corsage is low. 
The mother of the Chesterfield of the "Letters" is shown in 
three-([uarters length, standing, and looking down placidly 
upon the spectator. One hand hangs down at her side, the 
fingers losing themselves in her mantle; the other is folded 
liuhtlv across the front of her dress.

POBTRAIT OF JAMES PRESCOTT OF WARWICK 

. Height, 50 inches; width, 40 inches 

The full-length portrait of a small boy of important family, 
seated at the base of a tree in a park, and caressing a dog, 
which, sitting on its haunches below him, has put its head on 
his knee and looks up uncertainly at its small master, while a 
dead game bird lies near by on the ground. The boy is 
richly clad in golden-brown, pink and blue apparel, with knees 
bare and wearing leggings and sandals. His hair falls in long 
ringlets to his shoulders, and he faces three-quarters toward 
the front, looking in the direction of the spectator. 

I7i the two upper corners, respectively, appear the names James and 
Prescott, and near the lower edge of the canvas, at the center, 
is the rest of the inscription, of Warwick, Esq.

PORTILIIT OF MADAME D'ARGENVILLE 

Height, 51 inches; width, 381/) inches 

A TYPE of blond beauty (juite alive to-day, witb large blue 
eyes, pink cheeks, and the Cupid's-bow mouth. She appears 
at three-quarters length, seated, her left elbow bent out from 
her side and supported by the arm of her chair, her right hand 
and arm extended at her other side and holding forth a l)ink 
rose. Her figure faces full front, but her eyes follow the 
direction of the rose she is proffering, in a studied attitude. 
Long blond curls fall about her neck, framing with the lace- 
edged corsage her small neck and delicate chest, and her white 
and pale-plum dress is overlain by ample folds of a bright ver- 
milion cloak. Background of a dull-slate atmosphere and a 
faintly sunset-tinged horizon.

THE MARQUISE DE MAILLEBOIS 

;\ Heigh f, 51 inches; xc'idth, 401/2 inches 

\ 
\ 

The iSIarquise, a handsome woman, seen at three-quarters 
^ length, stands looking directly at the spectator, her blue eyes 

and sensitive mouth conveying the suggestion of a modest and 
happy smile. The gray or powdered hair, decked with iioAN'ers 
and pink ribbons and brushed up in an easy wave from the 
high forehead, only heightens the youthfulness of expression 
in the graceful, regular features. The pink of her hair adorn- 
ments is matched by a small bouquet held in one hand at her 
only moderately low corsage, of white lace embellishment. 
Her dress of rose pink with white flowing sleeves forms a rich 
harmony of color with the old-gold lining of her ermine cloak. 
Neutral background, with landscape suggestions.

POUTUAIT OF THE MARQUISE DU CHATELET 
AS "ASTliONOMY' 

Height, 51 '/v> incJies; widtli, 40 inches 

The famous and learned seventeenth-century Frenchwoman 
and intimate friend of Voltaire is seated facing front, with 
one arm caressing a globe, symbolic of the province of her 
inquiring mind. A pair of compasses is clasped in the 
opposite hand, which rests on her lap, and slie is gazing with 
wrapt attention into space, as at something above and far 
behind the spectator, and her features are of winning beauty. 
Distant as is the gaze, the expression is most sensitive, feminine 
and human, and the lady of gracious favors in her life smiles 
as graciously in this her counterfeit presentment by "the 
French Van Dyck." It is a portrait of three-quarters length, 
with the empyrean for background. The ^Marquise's old-rose 
cloak is pushed back from her shoulders, revealing the full 
throat and delicately modeled breast above the white lace 
goMu, with its gold-braided edges and clasps of emerald and 
pearls.

PORTRAIT OF THE DUCHESS OF ESC HER 

Height, 43 inches; length, 57 inches 

Three-quarter length portrait of a beauty of her day, seated 
at luxurious ease and resting with her back and one arm 
against a gold-embroidered, blue-upholstered bolster, from 
which a heavy yellow tassel depends, while with the other hand 
and arm she points toward the scenes of splendor which the 
palace appearing in the distant background l)espeaks. Her 
rich and ample maroon costume is made gorgeous by the in- 
tricate laces and embroidery and the jewels of the waist, whose 
pattern leaves exposed a delicately modeled neck and breast, 
innocent — like her arms — of jewels or ornament whatever. 
With her figure facing toward the right, the Duchess has 
turned her head to face full front, her large eyes directed 
downward.

Height, 58 inches; width, 37 inches 

In a blue-green dress with tight-titting. low-cut bodice, held 
by straps at the shoulders, and with flowing sleeves, the 
Duchess sits facing front and looking full at you. One hand 
holds in her lap a basket of varied flowers, and the other is 
toying against the arm of her chair with a stem of leaves w^hich 
she has taken from the basket. Her gray-powdered hair is 
decked with a single red flower and a green sprig, and a jar 
of blossoming carnations is at her side. Red and golden- 
brown draperies overhang her gilt-carved, red-ujDholstered 
chair. Landscape background.

(Attributed) 

POllTRAIT OF THE DUCHESSE DE LA 
FALLIERE 

Height, S4iY2 inches; width, 28 ^o inches 

The noted favorite of royalty is seated in a chair over which 
a crimson drapery has })een laid in loose folds, and she faces 
the right, three-quarters front. Pearls encircle her neck, hang 
from her ears, and are interwoven in her hair, and a large 
j)earl drop depends from the jeweled margin of her corsage, 
which is further embellished by a lace edging. Still more 
jewels adorn this rich, brocaded waist and its floAving sleeves, 
the affluence of the whole being further set off by a deep-blue 
mantle embroidered in gold. Her expression, withal, is wist- 
ful, with the suggestion of a summoned smile. In one hand, 
resting in her lap, she holds flowers; the other is fixed upon 
an ornament on a table at her side. Neutral background.
